WA Charters Releases Statement on OSPI Plan

Praise for call to rethink system; opportunity for collaboration

Seattle, WA — The Washington State Charter Schools Association’s (WA Charters) CEO Patrick D’Amelio released the following statement in response to State Superintendent Chris Reykdahl’s long-term vision for Washington’s education system, which was unveiled today:

“As advocates for a strong public education system that works for all students, we commend Superintendent Reykdahl for recognizing that a one size fits all education system no longer works for our state. We agree that Washington must act now to meet the demands of our global economy through introducing reforms and innovations – and we look forward to working with the Superintendent and his office on this shared goal. We are also pleased to hear his focus on a solution that calls for an updated funding model that provides additional support to students with special needs including those from communities experiencing high poverty.”

For thousands of children in Washington State, a high-quality education is out of reach. Washington is home to startling - and increasing - educational inequities for children from low-income communities, children with special needs, and children of color.

We can change this by providing our children with high-quality charter public school options that show what's possible when innovation meets accountability.
